This project is carried out by Chiba University’s Medical Mycology Research Center (pathogenic fungi/actinomycetes) and Nagasaki University’s Institute of Tropical Medicine (pathogenic protozoa). Together, they cooperate in various efforts to support education and research pertaining to infectious diseases and pathogens. Specifically, they are developing a system for collection, preservation, and distribution of pathogenic microorganisms, and they supply reliable strains of pathogenic microorganisms that are backed by high-level information. They also contribute to efforts aimed at conquering infectious diseases. For some institutes are not able to deal with living pathogenic microorganisms, we distribute their DNA or killed ones.
